"The encryption code is simple but very effective."

October 07, 2005  |  By rob38dd

 |  Version: Email Address Encryptor 2.0

Pros

I own several rather sophisticated email spider programs (for security testing) and could not detect a single email on my own websites.

Very impressive! I tried all the rest and found my email addresses, but not with

"Email Address Encryptor". I don't know how, but the simple code works.

"It does NOT hide your email address from spammers."

July 23, 2005  |  By JasonAD

 |  Version: Email Address Encryptor 2.0

Cons

The program's encryption uses elementary URL encoding. Almost every spam bot can break through this. The author claims, "There is no way a WebCrawler will recognize [it] as an email address." This is untrue. While it looks encrypted to YOU, it does not look encrypted to a bot. Those numbers directly correlate to individual letters. To a bot, that string of numbers (that looks complex to you) is the same thing as a string of letters (that looks like an email to you). Bots can decode these strings just as easily as it read a regular string of letters. Don't believe me? Search for 'HTML encoding' in Google and look at the first result - this webpage shows how simple the correlation between codes like %41 and the letter 'A' are. Using this, you could decode the string yourself. But, the author claims a spam bot could not. Consider if your web browser can decode all that stuff into an email, then a spammer bot surely can. The program's purpose of hiding your email address is completely flawed. The program does NOT hide your email address. To advertise it as such is horribly misleading. It serves only to give its users a false sense of security.

"Great, works instantly without flaw"

August 29, 2004

 |  Version: Email Address Encryptor 2.0

Summary

Instantly encodes a whole directory full of files with email address. Mail links still work perfectly but the MailTo: code is just a jumble of special characters that spammers cannot decode. Simple, effective, cheap, elegant.
